1,320 feet below sea level, in the lowest place on earth, you can find the liveliest site in the world – the Dead Sea. With an average of 330 full sunny days a year and Oxygen-rich atmosphere, the Dead Sea is a precious jewel of healing and relaxation for people worldwide.


The Dead Sea contains a high concentration of minerals that have seeped from rocks and soil and have been carried by springs to the Dead Sea, which has no outlet. Minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, Potassium and Iron are known for their ability to calm aching muscles and joints, stimulate natural circulation, smooth and soften the skin and help relieve stress and tension.
